Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
I am curious on the control knob if you turn it to 6 if that is warmer or colder. My knob goes from 1 to 6. I have turned the knob to 4 1/2 and it seems like it isn't getting any colder.
Higher settings always equal 'colder.'
I've never seen a refrigerator/freezer that was in good condition and didn't perform well with the control set to only half of the scale available.
I don't know how old your unit is, or if it has ever been moved, but you may have lost coolant over time or the fan that forces air through the condenser coils under the cabinet may not be running.
You should feel some warm air coming through the front grill while the compressor is running. If you don't, then the coils are unable to dispose of the heat collected from inside the cabinet. These coils do gather a ton of dust over time that reduces their efficiency so you might want to check behind that grill to see how much has accumulated there and carefully remove as much as you can without disturbing the coils too much since they are kind of fragile.
Removing the grill for access is always kind of a challenge but most are held in place by spring clips.
